Yes, since roughly 10 days I am getting the same error on a
fully updated (from stable) Fedora 22.
Ok, after yesterday's update to Plasma 5.5.4-1 and recreating my wallet,
kwallet seems to work better.
However, it's a bit confusing that Fedora 22 has both
KWalletManager and KWalletManager4 installed (KDE Menu > System).
KWalletManager4 (in About) says "Version 2.0", using KDE Development
KWalletManager (in About) says "Version 15.12.1", using KDE Frameworks
5.18.0, Qt 5.5.1 and the xcb windowing system.
Apparently kdedaemon uses KWalletManager4, not KWalletManager !!!
I can see this by opening a Network Place with fish:
- Now KWalletManager4 tells me that the wallet 'kdewallet' is currently
and has one password.
- OTOH, KWalletManager tells me that the wallet 'kdewallet' is currently
So it must be that the 2 kwallet manager versions use different DBs
of the same name (and I guess different DB locations).
Can anybody shed some light on what's going on here?
Does anyone successfully use the newer KWalletManager?
